At Stetson University, the Humanities Program is not a conventional department, but an interdisciplinary program offering a major and a minor as well as supporting the general education needs of the University.
While the Program does offer courses of its own under the HUM designation, majors and minors complete most of their work through the Humanities Division of the College of Arts and Sciences, and in some cases through the School of Music and through cultural studies offerings of other divisions and programs.
